Celebrating the unveiling of the new studio, Eidos-Montreal invited media, partners and industry stakeholders to take an exclusive tour of the cutting-edge facility. Executives from the new studio also announced during a news conference the exciting new project that will be driven by the new studio: the development of Deus Ex 3, the highly anticipated next installment to the award-winning AAA franchise.
“This is a very exciting day for Eidos,” said Rob Murphy, Managing Director of Studios at Eidos. “Deus Ex is one of our finest franchises, often cited as one of the best PC games of all time. By developing this game at our new cutting-edge Montreal studio we have the opportunity to really push the boundaries of expectation for Deus Ex 3.”
“We are thrilled to be working on such a prestigious franchise as Deus Ex in Montréal, which has a well-known reputation as a hotbed for experienced, talented developers. Our new studio enables us to work with a passionate and talented group of people and helps strengthen our position as industry leaders,” says Stéphane D’Astous, General Manager, Eidos-Montreal.
Eidos-Montreal continues to look for talented and enthusiastic developers. The goal is to fill 100 positions before the end of 2007 and a total of 350 positions by 2009. This represents a significant investment package in the booming Montréal technology community.
“We offer staff an alternative to the traditional ‘big studio’ working environment. Our Montréal facility offers a unique, fun and relaxed setting where people can realize their full potential and push the boundaries of game development. We wanted to invite our guests to see for themselves why Eidos-Montreal is such a great place to work,” says Stéphane D’Astous.
To thank Montreal for its incredible generosity, Eidos-Montreal is opening its doors to the public. People are invited to drop-by the new studio on Saturday, December 1st from 10 AM to 5 PM and witness gaming passion first-hand.
